So, what's the key to success if its not eat less, exercise more? Its recognizing that there's a lot more that plays a factor here than just overeating. In fact, it usually involves eating too much of the wrong type of food, eating at the wrong times, not eating at the right times, not to mention the emotional factors! Studies have shown that cats will eat out of boredom just as people do! And sugar. Don't get me started on sugar. Tastes great. The list of pros ends right there. The list of cons goes on and on. (Too late, you got me started!) Clinical studies show that sugar acts like a drug on the brain. It interrupts the normal appetite control mechanisms. Yes, I'm still talking about pets (although its true for people as well). But let's save the topic of sugar for another day before I get too riled up!
If you want your dog to lose fat, gain muscle, live longer, be healthier, have fewer diseases, less pain, and have to go to the vet less then let's take a few minutes to actually review what's going into your dog's body. Not sure where to start? This blog is a good place( and you already found it!) I want to personally congratulate all those who have sought me out to help them learn how to help their four legged friend. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and helping your pet!
